Escondido IcePlex Closing?
« on: June 22, 2020, 08:28:39 AM »
Rumors are swirling here in San Diego that Iceplex is Closing and for sale.  Anyone hear of that yet and could confirm?  That will really screw things up here with losing 2 sheets...  Where will the Jr. Gulls go?  Will the Ducks buy the rink?

Where will CAHA find a worse place to hold State Finals (Vacaville aside)?  It's not as if Iceplex was great for spectators, but I guess in the COVID-19 world, only 1 parent would be allowed in anyway.

Riverside?  They like to hold them at the Riverside rink too.

It's hard to beat KHS rink B for Bantam Tier play.

IcePlex officially done, citing the cost to replace the refrigeration and HVAC systems as the main reasons to shut down:

Damn...rumors were true.  I found out more information about that rink I did not know.  It is tied in to the power plant somehow for ice cooling and maybe power, and building is owned by the power plant supposedly.  The power plant is shut down and may be torn down.  Whoever buys that rink does not just go in and turn on the lights.  Jr Gulls are still putting out emails about tryouts like nothing is happening SMH...

What happens to the gulls? Do they migrate north. I can’t imagine there is enough ice in SD to absorb everything that was there.

Gulls aren't migratory.
